Dearth of Amazon Web Services Books?

AWS Logo.gif I’ve long been an admirer of Amazon’s Web Services products, but not a big user. Recently I’ve been thinking of doing some tinkering with EC2, S3, SQS, and the like. Given the current popularity of the platform amongst developers (or maybe my misguided perception of said popularity), I thought there’d be more books on the topic.

Amazon itself is surprisingly thin, with only about three to five titles that I can find which are on topic. The only O’Reilly book, Programming Amazon Web Services is over 2 years old. It’s probably sufficient to get started, but a lot has happened on the platform in that time.

Seems like there’s an interesting opportunity here.
